TechPitch™ provides a unique form in technique training. Where other forms of technique training are solely focused on the ball and stick action, the TechPitch™ method will focus on ball and stick action as well as footwork. Besides, the forms and exercises you perform are easily translated to the competition. This allows you to train specifically for situations that occur on the field.

TechPitch™ has common ground with karate! The innovator, Albert Monpellier, Monpellier Sports Methods & Solutions, B.V., is a hockey trainer as well as an experienced karate sensei. The karate principle of defending eight corners and moving 360 ͦ is perfectly applicable in the game of hockey. The BUBBA BALL is designed to help strengthen the wrists and arms while practicing ball handling skills on the TechPitch or in other close-control spaces. The BUBBA BALL is a heavy ball (too heavy for use in games and it should never be hit as its weight could possibly cause damage to your stick). It is half white and half red. The distinctive colors enables it to be easily found when mixed in with “regular” hockey balls. TechPitch™ is mobile and convenient to unroll in a training facility, on pavement (in a local park or driveway), and even in the living room.
